Pet Tip

Limber tail in dogs – Pet tip 140

Limber Tail Syndrome (AKA cold tail, dead tail, broken wag) is quite common among some breeds of hunting dogs, such as Labradors, Golden Retrievers, Pointers, Setters, and Beagles. It is a condition in which the tail becomes limp and sometimes painful after exertion, particularly during inclement weather, swimming, or in an under-conditioned dog. It is a condition well-known to hunting dog owners and trainers, but not commonly seen by veterinarians. The syndrome is characterized by the swelling of the muscles at the base of the tail (the wagging muscles, which are also used heavily during swimming when the tail may serve as a rudder). These muscles are bound to the tail by a tight ring of connective tissue. As the muscles swell and expand, the connective tissue begins to serve as a tourniquet – cutting off normal blood flow.

When increased pressure within a confined space results in reduced blood flow, it is known as a ‘compartment syndrome’.

I am all grown up now .  I love to guard the house , play with my favorite toys try to boss my brother Buster around , until he gets annoyed and puts me in my place .    I enjoy playing in the back yard , going for walks and when I am exhausted lay on the gallery and watch things.   I do hate cats trying to walk across the front lawn and up the driveway , sure wish I could get out and catch one of them .  One thing I can't stand is strangers and my owner telling me relax its okay .  Is never okay in a watch dogs eyes .
